Doula Services

What is a Birth Doula?

A doula is essentially a birth companion; providing support for individuals and families before and after birth. This could include… 

*Doula’s do not provide any medical support and cannot guarantee any particular birth outcome. They can attend births at home, in the hospital or at birthing centers as long as they are permitted. It is not required to have a natural or unmedicated birth to have a doula in attendance.

The care provided generally includes a Prenatal session 30-60 mins in length to discuss labour and delivery particulars, to go over or create a birth plan and to answer any questions. This is also an opportunity to get to know each other, including potential to meet and greet your birthing support person (partner, family, friend) that will be involved with the birth.

As a Doula, I will be on call and ready to support you through active labour & delivery 24 hours a day 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after your due date. If for any reason your doula cannot attend, an arrangement will be made during the prenatal session. 

When early labour begins, I will be there to support you via text until active labour begins, in which I will meet you at your birthing location for the labour & delivery process. 

After the birth, there will be a scheduled Postpartum visit, where I can provide support as needed and answer any questions.   

*A 20% deposit is required upon contractual agreement, the balance is due at 37 weeks. If for any reason I cannot attend your birth due to unforeseen circumstances, the balance will be returned or arrangements will be made for Postpartum services.
